Their Green Thumbs by Hunter Blackwell

Their Green Thumbs



Mom’s Yard


Small chartreuse leaves

kiss camel rocks, swaying

as breeze walks by.


Brodnax Plantings


Magenta petunias,

half-moon cuts on their bodies-

white tail, swishing jaws.


Grandma Savage’s Garden


Ivory magnolia

petals float to chestnut

mulch, roots wrapping.
